Sometimes I think Iím not doing enough when I teach, and then there are days like today when I think why am I so much? Why try to create interesting units and projects if all that matters are test scores? Why try to give children the tools to become successful adults, when their parents complain they have too much homework? Why teach kids responsibility when their parents teach them itís ok to make excuses? I work harder than a lot of teachers I have met but we still get paid the same. Why not just teach out of the textbooks?
